Burning Bowl Ceremony

Burning Bowl Ceremony

A Unity Burning Bowl ceremony involves each participant writing all things they wish to let go of on one piece of paper and all things they wish to accept into their life on another. Things to let go of may be negative feelings about persons, places, events or illness, conditions which are not desirable, habits or behaviors, and etc.

Those things to accept would be anything that is desired or would improve one’s life. The “letting go” list is lit by a large white candle and allowed to burn into ash while the participant visualizes them dissolving and disappearing. The “acceptance” or prosperity list is sealed in a self addressed envelope which will be mailed back to the participant at the end of the new year.

New Year resolutions are a typical way of celebrating the new year, but the Burning Bowl ceremony help cleanse the mind of the things that are negative or no longer serving us. The thought is that to allow for the prosperous gifts of the new year one must release the baggage of the old.

The Kingdom is Yours

Being angry and disconnected from the Creator who gave you life is like having a parent who, unbeknownst to you, is very, very rich. You have denied yourself a relationship with this parent all your life, and one day you realize that you could have inherited amazing riches had you been willing to open your…

Your Amazing Riches

Your Amazing Riches

Who birthed us (our earthly story) is small compared to our sacred story (our creation story), which we should recognize and honor. Until we connect with our creation story and recognize the Creator who has given us life, we will be incapable of truly living and being born into our magnificent selves. Being angry and…
